Wen Cleansing Conditioner ($12)

This is one of those products I have seen and read about everywhere but never got my hands on.  I remember the first time I ever heard about the brand.  I saw Chaz Dean, the creator of Wen, on Flipping Out when Jeff Lewis was designing for him.  That was many years ago and I still hadn't gotten my hands on one of Wen's products!   This 5-in-1 product replaces your shampoo, conditioner, leave in conditioner, detangler and deep conditioner.  I'm all about saving time so to use just one product on my hair sounds right up my alley.  I love that I got the lavender scent too.  If my hair responds well to this cleansing conditioner, I'll definitely look into the other scents!

Balanced Guru Style Me Roots To Hair ($9.50)

This organic oil has a nice, fresh minty scent.  It can be used to smooth hair and provide shine without leaving any greasy residue.  I'm going to enjoy this as the colder months approach because I really need help with taming frizz and fly-aways when I blow dry my hair! The only downside in my opinion, is the packaging.  It comes with a dropper, which isn't horrible but I would worry about accidentally spilling the entire bottle on my counter.

Ojon Protecting Treatment (~$4)

Speaking of blow drying - this treatment has seven oils to nourish and protect hair from heat styling.  This is a spray which is really convenient for travel too.  It has no overpowering smell which is nice.  I see this sample going very quickly in the fall when I reconnect with my hair dryer!

GlamGlow Youthmud Tingleexfoliate Treatment ($19)

This is another product I have seen everywhere but haven't purchased to try myself.  GlamGlow makes a variety of masks.  This particular kind exfoliates and resurfaces without stripping skin of its natural moisture.  At first, I thought there were pieces of plastic in it but after a little research I found out there are actual pieces of tea leaves in the mask.  It made application a little harder because it's not as easily spread.  Other than that, the mask did a good job and felt like a scrub when I rinsed it off.  It definitely exfoliated my skin thoroughly!

Supersmile Quikee ($18)

This is the one item I was most hesitant to try.  It is an instant teeth whitener that you apply to your teeth and spread the product with your tongue.  I was not excited to try this because I remember how unpleasant teeth whitening strips were with the "goop" that literally left a bad taste in my mouth.  The taste of this product is tolerable but I still don't care for it.  It's minty but still leaves me wanting to rinse my mouth out unfortunately.  I think the concept of instant teeth-whitening on the go is nice but I was not a fan of this item.

Grande Mascara (~$5)

This mascara is a somewhat dry formula which is my personal favorite.  Not only does this mascara define and provide volume, it has ingredients that can help promote heathier, shinier lashes.  The brush really grips every lash and there were absolutely no clumps!  The brush is a great size for the lower lashes as well.  I tried the mascara without even curling my lashes and it still made my lashes look great.  Overall, loving this product and I hope it helps benefit my lashes the more I use it!

It Cosmetics Brow Power Universal Eyebrow Pencil - Taupe ($12)

I love It Cosmetics eyeshadows but haven't tried any of their brow products.  My hair is dark brown but my ideal brow product (whether powder or pencil) is taupe.  I prefer to create a "shadow" to fill in my brows rather than creating a whole new shape or making them look too harsh.  This pencil makes getting ready a breeze.  It is a dry formula so it doesn't feel heavy or waxy.  My only complaint is that the packaging is considerably thicker than the product so it's hard to see where you are applying it sometimes.  There is a spooly on the opposite end which does come in handy.  I may just look for the full size of this product when it's done!

Laura Geller Eye Spackle ($23)

Laura Geller makes some of my favorite products.  They are easy to use, classic, versatile, and come in fabulous sets that are really cost-effective.  I've been a fan of the Spackle face primer for a while but never tried the eye primer.  Considering I use primer every single day, I will definitely get a lot of use out of this item!  The applicator is a brush and twisting dispenses the product so you may get more than you need at first.  I have used it a few times and you definitely do not need a lot of this primer!  If you use too much, shadows may crease a bit.  So just use a very thin layer to start and it will work like a charm.  This product can also be used as an all over shadow that dries to a matte finish.

All together this box's value is just over $100!  What do you think of these products - anything you'd be interested in trying?
